Great food

I've been to this place before to have drinks but not often. Not a great wine list at all. However, about a a month ago I went with my family for lunch and the food was really impressive. So the next time I was in town we went back and the food was delicious again. The first time I had... read more

Stopped here yesterday but had already eaten lunch. Beers were cold and wait staff friendly. Saw a couple of dishes around us and decided to come back for lunch. Great decision. The pulled pork sandwich was off the chart delicious. Would come back again and again if we lived in the area.

Tipping Point is a great stop on any Beertour! Their selection of in house brews were all tasty! Speaking of tasty the appetizers we ordered were great! Stuffed Jalapenos and Chicken Nachos.... The bartender Kelsey was very good! The only thing they are missing is a dog-friendly option .

Stopped by during a long weekend vacation in the mountains. After a bit of hiking earlier in the day, the beer tasted really good. I had the amber, my wife had the blonde, and both were excellent. We both ordered burgers and were very pleased. The meat was very high quality, and the buns and toppings were very fresh. Fries... More

We were directed here by one of the ladies at a shop in Waynesville. So glad we took her advice. Told her we wanted a good burger for lunch. She steered us to the right place. The service was good and the burgers delicious. The prices were reasonable too. Would definitely return on our next trip.

When we entered there was a sign stating Please Seat Yourself. There was no greeter. We looked around and saw a group leaving so we went to the table. I was rudely shoved aside by a server who then threw a reserved sign on the table. When my husband realized it was not reserved for us he asked the waitress... More

Tipping Point is a great atmosphere and good beer. It is our second favorite brewery in Waynesville next to Boo Jum. Service is excellent. TVs to watch. a good time! Worth stopping in for a pint!

Arrived here after a frustrating experience somewhere else. We sat at the bar to get a feel for the place. They offered pretty good bar food and excellent beer options. Just watch out for the high gravity ones. Hahaha. They were delicious though. The atmosphere was fun but the acoustics were a little rough. Someone from two seats down at... More

We just had dinner here and it was as good as we remember. The fish and chips are outstanding. The burger was fresh and well prepared. Good selection of craft beers and also domestic for those who do not like craft beers. Jade gave us outstanding service. Will be back when we are in town again.

The beers on tap were excellent, and the bartender was friendly. The service was not as active in checking on us as some of the other taverns and tap rooms, but I believe that was their way of doing things - more a local gathering spot. Everything was good, but since this place didn't offer us as out of towners... More
